Leadership Case Studies

Successful basketball coaches can inspire community coaches to improve themselves but they are not the only leaders who should be studied. Over the course of history, philosophers, economics, officers, teachers and other thinkers have solved a number of complex problems that coaches face on a daily basis. Coaches may want to study history privately or they may wish to include intersperse lessons and quotes as they work with younger players and teams.

Above else, these historical figures are great thinkers. Though their portraits may fade and the pages of their works turn yellow, they still have plenty to offer in today’s world. Coaches should keep an open mind; there are plenty of resources to help them lead and improve their processes. For any leader, the outcome should be self-actualization but there are countless processes that can lead to success.
